Barcelona Immersion

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 12, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
Matt's apt was the perfect spot for our two week Barcelona stay. He's a great host and has done a good job turning the apt into a comfortable base for exploring Barcelona and outlying sights. The location is superb with plenty of food shops and the Sant Antoni Metro very close. We walked to many places, Barri Gotic. Barceloneta, Catalunya Plaza etc. Doing a two week stay we probably cooked in a bit more and found the kitchen adequate, liked eating on the terrace, and the washer was great addition. Also enjoyed nearby restaurants Sesamo, Cera23 and pizza restaurant just next block over on Cera. Felt very safe and Matt was immediately accessible if there was a question or need.

Wonderful Apartment

This apartment was everything we expected - great location, well appointed, comfortable. Matt met us to take us to the apartment, showed us how everything worked, and made sure we had his number if there were any questions. The small patio is perfect for coffee in the morning or a glass of wine as you enjoy the sunsets in the evening. Matt and Sue are marvelous hosts - communication was easy and there was even a wonderful welcome basket to greet us.

A Humble Honeymoon Retreat

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 14, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
My husband and I recently stayed at this location for the larger portion of our honeymoon. Matt and Sue were an excellent host and hostess, and they made our first VRBO experience run smoothly. Before our honeymoon, they answered all questions, provided an easy method for payment, and then sent precise and traveller friendly directions on how to get from the airport to the apartment. Matt greeted us at the local cafe (which we strongly recommend for all meals or a quick coffee break) and then brought us to the apartment- he even brought our bags up for us! Upon entering the very clean apartment, we were surprised with champagne and a dessert basket made up by Matt and Sue. He showed us around and then let us have free reign of the property (leaving his number and a booklet with FAQ...very helpful, might I add). The property itself is in a wonderful location. It is minutes away from La Rambla and the St. Joseph Market (two places you must visit). Also, there are many small grocery stores on the nearby streets where you can stock up on water and other food items that can be stored in the apartment's fridge. Moreover, by staying at this apartment, you really had the feeling of being a Barcelona local. I want to add that the subway stop is also a short walk from the apartment, and we found the subway system here very efficient and user friendly.

We also felt secure leaving our personal belongings in the apartment. There are two doors (and two separate keys needed for entry). Also, the front door at the main entrance of the building automatically locks, so the threat of "unwanted visitors" entering the building is virtually impossible.

On the second leg of our honeymoon, we stayed at a resort in Mykonos. Don't get m wrong, that was nice too, but the experience in Barcelona was like no other. For my husband and I who absolutely love the big city life, this was perfect for us. We were often thinking about Barcelona and this quaint apartment after we left.

Matt and Sue were a gracious host and hostess. We met Sue near the end of our stay in Barcelona, and she too was so personable.

The apartment was perfect for any type of couple's getaway. The bed was large and comfortable with plenty of pillows. The kitchen was spacious and even offered a built in washer and dryer if needed. Finally, the bathroom offered a roomy shower and storage for toiletries. I would say that every space was used and it was very "feng shui." Thanks Matt and Sue.

FANTASTIC ROOFTOP TERRACE AND APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 11, 2013
  • Stayed: Apr 2013
We stayed her for a total of 4 days. The location could not have been better, the room was plenty big for my wife and I. We were welcomed with wine and fruit we entered the apartment.. which was great. Matt met us at a coffee ship right around the corner and walked us to it. It was in a safe neighborhood with many shops. We actually broke some things and Matt even walked us to the nearest shop and showed us where we cold purchase the items we needed. He could not have been more helpful, everything was just perfect. We are from America and usually the conditions in Europe are a little cramped, but this place was not- it was a gem. I would highly recommend this to anyone who goes to Barcelona- the roof was great for early morning coffee and late night cocktails.

Great Host!

Matt was wonderful. So helpful. We arrived late due to slow baggage claim and had to get to the train station to pick up our pre-paid metro card. Matt gave me perfect directions. Definately not worth the extra hassle just buy the 4 day pass at the metro. The apt is perfect size for two. Comfortable bed and you can open the windows for a nice breeze. The metro is two blocks away. The smell from the sewar is all over town. Do not worry just pour some bleach down the drain and then put in the drain plug in. Barlcelona awaits!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your positive comments about both myself and the apartment. It is always a pleasure to hear back from our guests and I'm very glad you enjoyed your stay.

I would like to address your comment about the odor in the city that you noticed during your vacation. I'm pleased to know that it didn't detract from your visit to Barcelona. The cause of this is very low water levels due to lack of rain this past summer combined with very high temperatures and humidity during the occasional heat-wave. This is a rare city-wide occurrence and the bleach and stopper solution you mentioned is a great one that we will pass on in the event that this should ever happen again.

It was a pleasure meeting you both and I look forward to seeing you again in the future. Regards, Matt.
